Michael Chandler

Michael Chandler, a Denver Colorado born abstract painter, began showing his paintings in New York in 1985 and has exhibited internationally since then in Milan, Seoul, Munich, Rio de Janeiro, and now in London. Almost all the paintings are characterized by soft, ample curves that occur on an abundance of different planes until reaching far into the imaginary vortices, hurricanes, whirlwinds and whirlpools of every kind, as if everything were moving, opening and creating a new natural world, a new kind of primeval explosion which gradually orders itself in to a system, a universe, a new form of nature. Chandler’s strength comes from his uncommon way of composing on canvas, compositions which find their power and renewal with the evolution of American abstract painting.
